I used this scrub last year and I really saw my blackheads diminish. I love the beads in it and can feel it exfoliate my skin. It is gentle on my skin and doesn't make it irritated.

I have very oily skin and for some reason, this breaks my skin out terribly. Maybe it's an ingredient I'm allergic to because a lot of my friends swear by it....

This is a wonderful face scrub. I wish it were a little more gentle and less abrasive, but it is their most intense facial scrub in their product line. It does a great job and leaves your skin smooth and nice

I really like this product makes your face feel vary clean and smooth. I like using this after I wash my face with my makeup cleanser. I feel as though It washes off all residue. Also doesn't leave face feeling dry.
